The Story

The Certified Angus Beef ®️ brand is the best Angus brand available. It's a cut above USDA Prime, Choice and SelectTen quality standards — including abundant marbling, ensure every bite is exceptionally flavorful, incredibly tender and naturally juicy.

Angus is a breed, not a brand, and there's only one Certified Angus Beef ® brand. To earn the logo, the very best of all Angus beef must meet 10 exacting standards, making it more selective than USDA Choice and Prime.

The brand’s standards were established when a group of farmers got together in the 1970s and said collectively, “We can do better. We can produce beef that’s extremely tender, juicier and always packed with flavor.” The brand’s standards have become the true mark of quality.


Testing For Doneness

  • Use a meat thermometer or, preferably, an instant-read thermometer.
  • Insert thermometer through the side of the cut, with the tip in the center, not touching any bone or fat.
  • Remove steaks and burgers from the heat when the thermometer is 5°F lower than your desired doneness.
  • Roasts should be removed from the heat when the thermometer is 5-10°F lower than your target.
  • Rests steaks and roasts before serving. The temperature will continue to rise to meet the target while the beef is resting (i.e. carryover cooking).

Additional Notes

The USDA recommends steaks and roasts be cooked to 145°F and then rested for at least 3 minutes. To ensure food safety, ground beef should be cooked to a minimum 160°F. Be sure to check with a thermometer, as color alone is not a foolproof indicator of doneness.
